As this journalist tried to warn us, we're all being eaten alive. Sadly, only our governments can save us. Yikes.
The free market has spoken: people want convenience, and are all too willing to let a moment of temporary laziness damn their children and planet for eternity. So, for those who have to live with it -- our ecosystems, our ocean and future generations -- we need to support bills like AB 1998, California's Single-Use Plastic Bag Ban. But ruthless lobbying groups like the American Chemistry Council spend a pretty penny to make sure they can keep pushing ecosystem killers like plastic bags, popping out hilarious propaganda only a senator up for re-election could buy.
Share and watch the video, and follow its links to contact a California state senator, in the last few days you can do so. Help California set a trend the rest of the US can follow.
